You might be aro if you mistook sexual, aesthetic or sensual attraction for a crush.   You might be aro if you thought romantic feelings described by others must be exaggerated.  

Alternatively, assumed you were bi or pan because you felt equally towards all genders.

If you have thought your squishes were crushes or have had to make up crushes to fit in.

YMBAI you are on this website and reading all (or some) of these things and nodding your head or smiling because you relate.

YMBAI you found kiss scenes in the middle of action completely stupid. Like, why are you kissing right now when zombies are about to kill you?

That, and finding supposedly "romantic" scenes hilarious.

YMBAI you watch your allo friend interact with their romantic partner and the whole thing seems so strange, so unnecessary, you just don't get it.

YMBAI you can't flirt to save your life.

I don't even know how to recognise other people flirting let alone how to do it myself.

YMBAI you've been in relationships and thought you were in love but then look back and realize you just thought that person was like cool and funny and that's not actually love according to allo-ros.

Hum, You might be aro if.../I consider myself aro because...

I never imagined myself as involved in a romance in my daydreaming.

I did not want to engage in romance/never initiated romance.

Did not think of my feelings towards another person as "romantic".

Consequently, did not want to be in a romantic relationship but in a very close friendship.

Felt overwhelmed in a relationship.

Developped borderline-ish behaviour regarding closeness and repulsion.

Developped a depression after starting a romantic relationship.

Felt like living the wrong life somehow.

Feeling relieved after breaking up.

Being serene around couples despite being single, because I feel whole and content and live the life I want.

YMBAI you just wanted to talk to and spend time with your "crush" but not do anything romantic with them (basically you thought you had a crush on someone but it's probably closer to a squish)

YMBAI you're watching a movie with your mum, and she fast forwards a battle scene but doesn't fast forward the romance/sex scene, and you're wondering why she thought the battle scene would look even cooler in fast motion.

YMBAI you watch that Match.com commercial (i see it on Hulu) where the guy says to the random lady on the street, (paraphrased),   "What if I were to offer you a dating service that has people on it that exactly fits your dating criteria?"

And.....you can't even process that.  Wat??  Where do i even start?  How do you even?
